This recognition from The Academy comes after Deepika’s appearance at the previous year’s Oscars, where she highlighted the power-packed song ‘Naatu Naatu’ from ‘RRR.’

On the professional front, Deepika recently appeared in the aerial action thriller ‘Fighter,’ alongside Hrithik Roshan. Her upcoming project includes the sci-fi action thriller ‘Kalki 2898 AD,’ starring Prabhas and Amitabh Bachchan, set to release on May 9, 2024.

Meanwhile, Ranveer Singh is gearing up to reprise his role as Simmba in Rohit Shetty’s cop drama ‘Singham Again,’ featuring an ensemble cast including Deepika Padukone, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff, and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Additionally, he’s ready to headline Farhan Akhtar’s highly anticipated ‘Don 3,’ slated for a 2025 release.
